100,000 Thanks!

I started this blog a little over two years ago, not long after BMW announced the MegaCity vehicle would go into production. I was still driving my MINI-E at the time and the prospect of a real production electric BMW seemed so far off. Well, we're now only weeks away from the i3's European launch and a few months from being able to buy one here in the States. The traffic on this site has really picked up recently and it just surpassed 100,000 pageviews. I've received hundreds of comments and many emails from followers and I just want to say thanks for reading, commenting, following, sharing and reaching out to me. Your participation is the only reason I continue to post about the i3. This is not a commercial site, I do not have advertisements or profit off this in any way. I simply do it because people continue to stop by, read the posts and comment. It's been a fun ride so far; here's to the next 100,000 pageviews and thank you!


  1. Well done Tom, keep em rolling!

  2. Have just completed test drive of BMW i3, I live in Europe. I would like to make the following comments.
    - It drives wonderfully smooth and acceleration is excellent and seamless.
    - I am 6'1 and my wife 5'2 could not sit behind me without the driver seat being moved two notches forward
    - the rear seats are only good for very short distances as you can feel every bump and cities have plenty of them

    Why did BMW not make the car 10 cm/4 inches longer would have cost them very little/nothing. Do these designers not realise that the human race is getting taller??
    Why did they not install adjustable shock absorbers to compensate for BAD city roads.

    So unfortunately, once again, I have to wait for the ideal EV to come along.
